5 Things Women Will Never Understand


Recommended Posts

Men are a misunderstood lot, which all in all is probably for the best. Women are better off not knowing that we eat with our hands the minute they leave the room or that we use their nail clippers to trim our nose hair. Better for them, better for us. Still, it's annoying that women spend more time and money trying to understand the minds of cats than they do wondering about what makes men tick. Which is why they'll never understand...

Our consuming need to own the biggest and most expensive version of just about everything.
Our compulsive desire to drive off-road vehicles in cities and use corkscrews that resemble offshore drilling equipment is well documented. As marketing targets, men are suckers for terms like "professional" or "industrial strength," because inside every man is the germ of every profession he ever imagined himself one day excelling at. Most of these purchases are harmless, little more than childish wish fulfillment played out at a higher testosterone level. But occasionally we go too far. The guy upstairs from me once boasted that he had a filter which filled his flat with "operating theater quality air." I kept him away from my surgical steel steak knives.

Why we are so bad at shopping.
We've never been trained to do it the right way. Supermarkets are like giant booby traps for males -- which is why if you send a man out to get eggs, sugar and bread, you should not be surprised if he returns home with a case of beer, a pair of jeans and a tree.

The reason why we don't like to discuss The Relationship.
Most of us will find any excuse to dodge those conversations that start with questions like "Are you really happy?" and "Where do you see us going?" A relationship is a delicate thing, like an antique clock, and we know what will happen if we start picking it apart. Often our reticence will result in a lengthy conversation about why we have trouble talking about... "The Relationship."

Why we think we can fix things.
Almost all men believe they can repair virtually anything with a little patience. In reality, we're only half right. Men are extremely good at taking things apart: whether it's a dishwasher or an antique clock, a man can break it down to its most basic components in no time. Unfortunately, this is where our expertise usually leaves off, and we're mostly satisfied with leaving bits and pieces spread all over newspaper on the kitchen table.

Men and video games.
Women cannot understand how grown men can waste huge chunks of their lives zapping things off a screen. When a man repeatedly rings his girlfriend to say he has to work late and routinely comes home at two in the morning all glassy eyed, she will usually take this as evidence of an affair -- when it's more likely that a pirated copy of Streetfighter II is making the rounds at the office.

Well I think we all have our own personal experiences and private logic behind what we believe to be true. That being said this was definitely written from a private logic, none of these things are my true for me personally.    Men and women alike can grow past any and all stereo types, however it is a matter of choice. Will we choose to make decisions that make us a more well rounded, happier individual? If the answer is yes then so be it, if the answer is no well then this is where you’

Um, is this an American viewpoint I wonder  ? 

As a 71 year old immature Englishman I am nothing like the things you mention at all.

Video games, you must be joking. I would not waste my time or money on such rubbish. Facebook & Ebay guilty, but not pointless video games.  Fixing things. I don't go beyond my ability, but i do tend to go for practicality rather than looks. 

The relationship. No problems there, I'll listen and talk about how we both feel and why. And I tend to tell my wife and my son if I'm feeling emotionally or physically unwell. We live in a wicked world and we need the ones close to us to understand us. 

Shopping, no probs'.  I lived on my own from age 18 and had to learn to shop for my own food and pay my own bills.

Sorry but that IS an American thing.  Just look at the American classic cars, and refrigerators.   Us English are far more practical. 

Wow, Americanism at it's finest y'all.

Just some food for thought.
